  • VOLLEYBALL: Brown, Evans honored

    With her busy basketball schedule this summer, LaRue County senior middle hitter Ivy Brown couldn’t devote as much time to volleyball as she would have liked.

    That’s why when the volleyball season began this fall, she put basketball on the backburner and focused all her energy into volleyball.

    Facing the state’s top-ranked team to open the Class 3-A playoffs proved to be too much of an uphill battle for the LaRue County Hawks.

    “They’re legit. They’re everything everyone’s heard about,” said Hawks coach Josh Jaggers. “That’s what successful teams look like – numbers, physicality, just everything. They beat up on us pretty good.”

    The Cardinals built a 40-0 halftime lead.
